Yosemite 2015!

We hiked at least 96.5 miles with 16,350 feet elevation gain. An amazing trip to an unbelievably beautiful park with two great friends!

Cathedral Lakes

A great first hike to get acclimated to the altitude

Clouds Rest

A few wrong turns, getting distracted by Search & Rescue, and our first glimpses of Yosemite Valley

Saddlebag Lake and Mono Lake

A strenuous hike through the Twenty Lakes basin, followed by sunset at Mono Lake, and an amazing hot meal with the biggest slices of cake ever served at a gas station

Birdwatching Plus Lembert & Dog Domes

A ranger-led bird-watching tour through Tuolumne Meadows followed by even more adventure up Lembert and Dog Domes and a walk out to Dog Lake - twice!

North Dome

More domes! More great views!

Half Dome!

A bit of a climb.

Beautiful Viewing Points

We spent the day soaking up the views at Glacier Point, Washburn Point, Taft Point, and Sentinel Dome!

McGurk Meadows, Dewey Point, & Crocker Point

Another gorgeous day of hiking and bird spotting!

Eagle Peak

John Muir knew a thing or two, and he thought this was the most amazing view of the valley. He was right.


In our farewell to Yosemite, a short walk to see some big trees
